|KnittingI used to knit a lot, but I haven’t knitted much of anything since discovering weaving. Nonetheless I have made a few items worth showing…|
|DyeingI live in a fairly small apartment, so I don’t have room to store a lot of colored yarns. I also like to choose from a large palette of colors (who wouldn’t?). So, what to do?Why, make up your own dye samples, of course!|
|Marbling FabricsAt the annual Christmas convention of family and friends, we got a little too drunk and decided to marble some fabric for fun. (Okay, we weren’t really drunk, but we should have been.) Here are photos and a description of the marbling process.|
|Stitched PiecesI haven’t done much embroidery since about 2001, but here are some pieces I stitched very early on in my weaving career.|
I've been at this since my sophomore year of college, so I've been doing this for 20+ years now. I would describe myself as "semi-pro"; I spent one winter working weekends with Richard Donnelly, who was named one of America's top 10 artisan chocolatiers by Chocolatier Magazine. I learned a LOT about chocolatemaking from Richard, and have since studied quite a few books on chocolatiering. I spend an entire month experimenting with flavors, textures, and recipes before doing the "production batch" the week of Thanksgiving, so I've put a lot of effort into learning. I am very proud to say that recipients compare my work favorably with the best artisan chocolatiers!
